Market technicians refer to such stocks as being in an accumulation phase before a mark-up and peak. Traders and hedge funds have frequently found that these types of stocks continue to build a solid price base and then ultimately spike higher and peak when others 'discover' how good the stock is performing.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico SAB de CV as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, notable return on equity, solid stock price performance, growth in earnings per share and good cash flow from operations. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 6.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 20.5%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
  • The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Transportation Infrastructure industry and the overall market, GRUPO AEROPORTUARIO DEL PACI's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Investors have apparently begun to recognize positive factors similar to those we have mentioned in this report, including earnings growth. This has helped drive up the company's shares by a sharp 37.36% over the past year, a rise that has exceeded that of the S&P 500 Index. Turning to the future, naturally, any stock can fall in a major bear market. However, in almost any other environment, the stock should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed nice gains in the past year.
  • GRUPO AEROPORTUARIO DEL PACI has improved earnings per share by 10.8% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, GRUPO AEROPORTUARIO DEL PACI increased its bottom line by earning $3.01 versus $2.89 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.49 versus $3.01).
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $87.80 million or 29.40% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 7.72%.
